Catechesis of the Good Shepherd


God and the child have a unique relationship with one another, particularly before the age of six. The growth of this relationship should be assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is rooted in scripture, liturgy, and contemplation. Drawing from the Montessori method, CGS takes place in a specially prepared environment at our parish called the Atrium. For children age 3-6. Sessions limited to 5 children, masks, distancing, & sanitizing. Extensive program information at


“If we want to help the child grow near to     God, we should, with patience and courage… seek to go always closer to the vital nucleus of things. This requires study and prayer. The  child himself will be our teacher if we know   how to observe him.” – Sofia Cavalletti
